The race got off to a very fast start with a very strong field of A4 and women riding. Everyone rode strong to the bottom of the first climb where the group split up a bit. I fell behind on the decent but I was dragged home into first woman by my fellow club members Aiden Gill, Joe Moran and Robert Coakley.

It was a challenging race but it was very well organised. Thanks to the lads who got me home and my coach Anthony Murray also well done to everyone else who raced today.
